Color Throwdown Challenge #260

Hello everyone...welcome to this weeks Color Throwdown Challenge!!! Tammy gave us a bright, happy color palette to work with...don't you just love the beautiful fall colors!! Maybe this will usher in some cooler weather...LOL!!! 

My card features the Silhouette Stem 1 die from Taylored Expressions. It was used on four different colors of card stock: Pistachio Pudding, Tangerine tango, Baked Brown Sugar, and Prism Frosted Azalea. The Pistachio Pudding diecut was adhered over the Baked Brown Sugar one leaving just a hint of the brown showing like a shadow. The flowers were cut from the Tangerine Tango and the Frosted Azalea and they were adhered on top. The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions Zinnia Bouquet set and was stamped with Baked Brown Sugar ink onto the Choice Snow White cardstock and then it was cutout with a Spellbinderers die. The tiny butterflies were punched from the same papers and the washi tape and twine finish it off. 

Remember, you don't have to use the exact colors....use what you have as long as they are close to the challenge colors and be sure to add CTD260 to the keywords section when you upload your card to an online gallery so we can find your work!!!
